It has been some time since Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba courted fans with a new episode, but that will change soon enough. While its first movie broke box office records globally last fall, the show itself is getting ready for a comeback of its own. Demon Slayer is slated to premiere its second season this year, so fans are keeping an eye out for any update on the release. And thanks to Anime Expo, an English sub trailer for Demon Slayer has gone live to appease us all.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba's second season will be releasing in Japan later this October, and as part of their special panel at Anime Expo Lite 2021, Aniplex of America has finally released an English subtitled version of the first intense trailer for the second season. This will be covering the Entertainment District arc of Gotouge's original manga, and you can check out the trailer for the new season below:
If you wanted to catch up with Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba before the second season hits, you can find both the first full anime season and Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train now streaming on Funimation with both Japanese and English dubbed audio (You can actually check out our full review of the film here if you'd like). If you wanted to read ahead in the manga to see what's coming next, you can find Koyoharu Gotouge's full series now with Viz Media's digital Shonen Jump library.
Catching up is going to be absolutely necessary as the second season will be jumping into the Entertainment District arc following the events of the Mugen Train film. This arc will task Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu with an intense new mission that will pit them against a set of powerful new demons who are basically on the same level of strength as Akaza was during the film. But thankfully they'll also have a powerful new ally in the Sound Hashira, Tengei Azui.
